Unable to resist sand and salt despite dreary conditions, our number 1 bikini babe, Melody Le, took to Venice beach for some seashore frollicing and a photoshoot with Frankie Mark. After the shoot, Mel shared her tips for staying sexy at the beach, from the best swim coverup to her barely-there makeup routine. See the rest of the pics and check out Melody’s answers to learn how to have the sexiest summer ever.
Matte or glossy?
I like glossy for daytime and matte for an evening look
Current favorite makeup products?
What are your eyeshadow secrets?
I basically only know how to do my eyeshadow one way. But I just kept practicing until I learned the shape of my eyelid and what I found to be the most flattering look! So practice makes perfect 😉
Where do you go for the best bikinis?
What’s the secret for finding a swimsuit to compliment your body type?
To try them on!! I’ve seen stuff that looks so cute on the hanger or on another model but does not flatter my body shape at all. My best advice is to TRY before you BUY and to embrace your shape and what looks good on you!
Cutest and easiest garment to throw on over a swimsuit?
A kaftan… my favorite is from Camilla (Also Australian!)
How do you wear makeup to the beach?
If I’m going to the beach for a serious tanning session I’m make up free with SPF30+ minimum on my face and some big sunnies…. If I’m going to meet up with friends and want to attempt to look cute, I’ll apply sunscreen under a tinted moisturizer with some light mascara and gelled brows for a fresh and not too heavy look.
